It was initially launched in 37 universities, involving approximately 40,000 volunteers. However, over time and as a Pan-Indian program, the number of educational institutions covered by NSS has grown year after year. A potent and successful media initiative in the higher education system is the National Service Scheme. By involving students in a variety of activities, it offers community education. Through a range of programmes that include participants from many communities, NSS offers expertise and information to student volunteers. NSS activities aid in the development of a healthy student-community relationship for social development and consciousness. So, the investigator intends to study the practices of NSS for enhancing social commitment among undergraduate students in Kerala.</p> 2022-10-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/949 The Impact of Bus Stop Designs on the Social Behavior of Student-Bus Users 2022-10-15T05:42:17+00:00 Lemuel Ebo Makafui Amegashie amegashie.lemuel@yahoo.com <p>Bus stop designs are a communal checkpoint for public vehicular transit. It has become a prominent and relevant tool in curbing traffic, as well as minimizing carbon emissions through its public services by reducing the ratio of passengers to automobile usage. Bus stops, therefore, have evolved into hubs of public significance for settlers in their businesses, schools, churches, offices as well as homes, hospitals, parks etc. In the universities, bus stops have moved from a mere option to an inevitable necessity. The rising demand by the student populace has proven to be a result of numerous factors, of which one of them is, to minimize transport expenses in the case of opting for taxis; or avoidance of fuel expenses and maintenance costs in the case of owning a licensed vehicle. It so therefore beckons for an investigation of these transit points and how their infrastructural fabrications have had an impact on social behavior of students at these locations. The study hereby seeks to make an intricate analysis, investigation and finding out how bus stops have played a major role as pertaining to the social behavior of students at these points Naturalistic method is engaged so as not to tamper with the variables within the field of experimentation. This is achieved through research instruments such as questionnaires, interviews and documentations. The study focuses on all Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) bus stops that see regular activity, usage, and engagement. The findings of this study provide a reasonable approach in how these checkpoints can be improved in their design in order to enhance positive social behavioral traits and minimize the negative among students.</p> 2022-10-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/872 Emotional Intelligence in Aspiring Business Leaders for Cognitive Global Excellence 2022-06-06T05:46:44+00:00 Rudrarup Gupta rudrarupgupta21@gmail.com Paulami Niyogi rudrarupgupta21@gmail.com <p><em>An organization is an unparalleled foundation for global enrichment based upon its sound socio-economical infrastructure. Most importantly it should have the well-built managerial hierarchy to drive the same according to the present market scenario. The real fact is that organizational leaders are truly appointed not only to perform well alongside their best occupational exposures but to maintain the orthodox legacy of an organization right from day one. That is why one of the fundamental attributes is “Emotional Intelligence”. It is indeed very conducive to refine their collective envisions in connection with their best occupational superiority. This pivotal concept of emotional intelligence is comprised upon “1. Self-understanding, 2. Self-skill, 3. Self-attention, 4. Self-management and 5. Self-stimulation”. These are equally important for them to bring out such infrastructure which would definitely be healthy to enable an organizational splendour within a very short while. Leaders do accumulate this exclusive intelligence in a workplace just to enhance the anticipated professional outputs indeed. Because they do have the specific target to extract the collective contributions from their aspiring subordinates to reach the destined organizational goal in a very conforming manner. On the other hand, the unique concept of “Emotional Intelligence” inspires both leaders and followers not only to manage emotions but to invest their collective emotions for ensuring the best occupational outputs accordingly. </em></p> 2022-06-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/950 Childhood Literature with Images of Technology for a Sustainable Way of Life 2022-10-15T06:29:46+00:00 Mohammad Asif Pasha drpasha126@gmail.com <p>"Sustainable development" can be defined as development that meets the requirement of current generation without compromising that of future generations. New technologies are considered as the answer to conflicts between economic growth and natural resource conservation; new technologies are seen as an enabling factor in this endeavor. Sustainability may be represented as a collection of ancient values that have been part of daily life in Sweden for many generations. Education for<br>sustainable development is an objective in the Swedish national curriculum since 1994, and this is especially true of technology education. International debates about the future and long-standing traditions of living locally are clearly reflected in the instruction. Images of technology and the relationship between technology and sustainable development are examined in this study. In our opinion, photos like this impart important ideals to the next generation. Four Swedish writers, Elsa Beskow, Jan Lööf, Inger Sandberg, and Sven Nordqvist, whose works are still widely read by children, parents, and educators alike, have been selected for our research. This research work examines the many ways in which technology has been depicted in the texts: as an obedient servant, an inexorable force, an equal partner, and a natural occurrence. The technologies playing significant part in the tales under consideration are set in a variety of settings, some more socially conscious than others, ranging from the utopian to the idealistic. Optimism for children's potential to make good decisions may be seen in the works of all four authors. The burden of solving the problems that the present adult generation has generated will fall on young people. Most of the tales portray males as the primary drivers of technical advancement from a gender standpoint.</p> 2022-10-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management
